Tehran (IP)- The spokesman of Iran Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that Saturday, October 1, 2022, was a day of solidarity with Palestinian children, which is a great issue.

Iran PressIran News: Attending his weekly press briefing, Nasser Kanani stated: "According to the statistics published in the official sources of the Zionist regime, since the beginning of the second Al-Aqsa intifada in 2002, 2230 Palestinian children have been martyred." 

Kanani added: "The Zionist regime has arrested 19,000 children and teenagers under the age of 18 and has tried between 500 and 700 children since 2020, and that is why October 1 has been named the day of detention for Palestinian children."

Counter-revolutionary groups resorted to unethical methods

The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman says counter-revolutionary groups resorted to unethical methods to create insecurity while attacking diplomatic places and embassies.

Speaking about the attack on Iranian embassies in other countries, Kanani said: "After the recent developments in some European countries, some of our embassies have been attacked by groups and people belonging to counter-revolutionary movements and violent groups."

"In some countries, as a result of the lack of adequate protection and lack of initial attention of the security forces, the attackers managed to attack some of our agencies, especially in the premises and outside the agencies, and some parts of the agency were attacked," he added.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman underlined that according to the Vienna Convention, host countries are obliged to protect diplomatic places and said: "We protested to the host countries."

"The unfortunate point is that some people in these countries resorted to the most violent methods as a political protest, in addition to attacking diplomatic places, they even tried to influence the normal activities of some of our embassies by threatening the diplomats with unethical methods, creating an atmosphere of insecurity," Kanani highlighted.

Hostile media; room for provocative actions, encouragement of violence

"Some Farsi-language media abroad have turned into operations rooms and encouraged violence under the pretext of covering the news of the recent riots in Iran," the spokesman of Iran Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

Kanani added: "These so-called media are factory of lies, and a provocative operation room."

"By encouraging violence, promoting murder, inciting to attack public properties and educational centers, making Molotov cocktails and encouraging people to attack state buildings, they have been turned into a tool for instability," he underscored.


The spokesperson said: These are not media, but they are a center for promoting violence, and their activities are not compatible both with the laws of the host country and with international customs.

He pointed to the extensive news coverage of the riots in Iran by these television channels, especially the London-based IRAN INTERNATIONAL, which is said to be financially supported by the Saudis, and said: "Iran has given a serious warning to the countries where these media are located and also the countries that financially support these media."

"We announced that we would use our legal and political capacities against these TV channels that promote terrorism," the spokesman noted.

He added: We have taken the initial measures and, God willing, we will follow them soon.
